Pine reference in 1388 manuscript

The yellow boxed characters translate as "Pine."
Chinese is read, of course, from right to left.  The two long columns in the middle of this page
are the text for the three-character section title ("K'UN-SHAN STONE") in the fourth column from the right side of the page.
